God's Omnipotence and Omnipresence

Food for thought...

Last Sunday we had a visitor in services.  After service he came forward and introduced himself and told me he had his sister's ashes in the car.  He asked if I could bless them, and I agreed.  I prayed for him, asking for help with the grieving process, asking for God's peace and joy to return.  I also prayed for God's grace and mercy for this sister's soul.  considering she had passed away quite some time ago, I wondered if that part of the prayer was a little late.

In my time of reflection later, I got to thinking about that.  Since God is everywhere at the same time, and since He knows all things, and is even outside of time, could God have heard my prayer when his sister passed away?  Could God have been aware of my petition when his sister appeared before the judgment seat?  Could there be no such thing as a late prayer?

I would love to hear your comments on this.
